Seth Rollins is set to defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WWE Payback on Saturday, September 2, 2023, at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His match against Shinsuke Nakamura could be memorable one, and the Visionary is a bit vulnerable before the show.

This week on WWE RAW, Shinsuke Nakamura revealed what he said to Seth Rollins last week on RAW. He threatened him in a big way, as he revealed that he said, “I know about your back.”

Later on, Seth Rollins had a chance to answer back to this during a backstage interview. The Visionary admitted that he does have a back injury, and he’s not sure how much longer he really has in the ring, because his injuries are not going away.


“He caught me off guard last week when he brought up my back injury, because the truth is it’s not something I really like to talk about publicly. If we’re being completely open here, I do have two fractures in my lumbar spine. I have been living with that injury for over four years, and it doesn’t get better by itself, it gets worse, and the truth is that I don’t really know what the endgame is. I don’t know how much longer I will be able to do this at the level I’m currently running at. You know what? That’s part of the gig.”

Seth Rollins also said it’s “part of the gig” if Shinsuke Nakamura wants to play mind games, bring up the past, question his character, or hurt him. However, if Nakamura wants to bring Rollins family into it, then he “better be prepared to face me man to man.”

This was quite a development from Seth Rollins on RAW this week. Only time will tell how it turns out, but it seems that the Visionary was quite candid this week on RAW.
